IN THE CHURCHES.
The Nw M. E. Church Partially
The Wervleea Yesterday talon Meet
lac t the Klrat Haptlst-Mlanlaas
Talkrd of at the Breadway At Trla
liy. The familiar sound of the bell of the
First M. E. church which for years has
summoned the Methodist people of Rock
Island to the house of God, was heard for
the first time in just one year yesterday.
It was the anniversary of the day
the congregation bad assembled for the
last time in the old church, and the same
old bell Id a new belfry rang out a joyful
bidding to a new church home. The hand- J
some edifice, exactly on the site of the
old one at the corner of Nineteenth street
and Fifth avenue, is not yet entirely com
pleted, but so much of the Sunday school
room had been finished as to admit
of its use temporarily until the
church proper is in readiness for cccu
panry. The Sunday school first mel.and
at 10:30 o'clock a large congregation as
semMtd. Rev. G. W. Gue. the zealous
pastor, conducted the services which
opened with the singing of the doxology
by the choir, led by J. T. Noftsker, and
with Miss Ella M. Wilcox at the instru
ment. Mr. Gue asked the invoca
tion, the congregation united in singing
"Oh. for a Heart to Praise. My God,"
Rev. Kaufman offered a prayer of thanks
giving, and Mr. Gue read from the scrip
tures portions of the nineteenth Psalm and
also from the twentieth chapter of Rev
elations. The hymn, "How Firm a
Foundation Ye Saints of the Lord," and
'Come Uuto Me." were sung, and Mr.
Gue made a few remarks upon the
new church building. The service
he said, was not intended to be of a dedi
catory nature. The formal dedication
would take place about the first Sunday
in September when Bishop Merrill would
be present. He then preached a sermon
from the text, "The Books Were Open
ed," dwelling with much force upon the
various books with which man must have
to do in this world, and in all of which
he shoifld see that his record was clearly
written to the end that he may not be
afraid to have it read in that latter day
when it shall be produced and opened
before the judgment seat on high. In
the evening a service of a song occurred.
The sides of the pulpit were beautifully
adorned with flowers.
AT THE PIHST BAPTIST.
Rev. C. E. Taylor, the new pastor of
the First Baptist church, preached bis first
sermons yesterday morning and evening.
He is an able and fluent speaker and
made a favorable impression upon the
congregation. In the evening the first of
a series of union services in which the
four churches clustering about Court
House square the Central Presbyterian,
Christian chapel. United Presbyterian and
First Baptist joined was held at the
latter church. Revs. Kerr, Grafton and
Marshall participated in the services and
Rev. Taylor preached the sermou.
AT THE BROADWAY.
At the Broadway Presbyterian church
last evening. "A Mission Tour of Japan,"
was conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. S.
Marquis. The following papers bearing
on the present crisis and religious sitna.
tion in Japan were read: "History and
Present Political Condition of Japan," by
Mr. Graham Lee, of this city; "Temples
and Religions." by Miss Nellie H-tys;
"Rationalism in the Universities. and the
Y. M. C. A. Movement to Meet it," by
Mr. F. W.Lang, general secretary of the
Y. M. C. A. There was a large congre
Rev. R. H. Rudd, D. D . of Knox
ville, conducted the services at Trinity
yesterday, and will continue to until the
return of the rector, Rev. R. F. Sweet.
He returned to Knoxville this morning,
and on Thursday will come to Rock Is
land with his family and occupy the rec
tory during the remainder of the sum
mer. There will he services next Friday
morning and evening.
Euroi-rlng the 4ame Law ef lllinela
The supreme court of Illinois in a re
cent decision affirms the constitutionality
of the game laws of Illinois, and affirms
the judgment of the lower court. The
law was passed at the last session of the
legislature, and the new feature was the
absolute prohibition of the selling of
game, as well as its transportation for
sale. Last fall the American Express
company received and delivered quail to
a Chicago commission house. The com
pany was fined $200 in the county court
for the violation, and to test the law the
case was taken to the supreme court,
which has just handed down a paternal
decision affirming the judgment of the
county court. Counsel for the company
raised two principal points the uncon
stitutionality of the law and its violation
of the rights of property, holding that the
game when killed became private proper
ty, and the game law violated that right
by destroying the property without due
process of law. It is the first test case
under the law, and the decision is of
great interest to the people as well as to
the bench and bar of the state.

BEES OCT OF BUSINESS.
Important IHacaverlen by a Suecea
' rat and Well-Knewa Aptarlat.
J. J. Nagel, principal of school No. 4,
of Davenport, and a very successful and
enthusiastic apiarist, reports to the 2)m
ocrat a sad state of things among the
bees and their keepers. There is so far
this year an utter failure of the honey
crop. , There are plenty of flowers, but
there is no honey. The bees work hard, !
go out daily and search the flowers as !
assiduously as ever, but they get only
just enough honey to keep them alive.
They have laid by nothing so far. and the
clover'croD is now gone. There is noth
ing but the autumn flora for them to de
pend upon now, and that may fail also,
though it is apt to prove more certain
than the spring and summer bloom.
The same thing is reported all over the
country, except some places in the south.
There seems to be a general dearth of
honey, and nothing to make it from.
That the price will rise is a matter of cer-
taintv. The reason for the failure of the
crop is not understood. It is not at all
apparent. The beekeepers are puzzled
over it and have no explanation to offer.
Mr. Nagel is of the opinion that there is
something sinister in the atmospheric
conditions that prevents the bees getting
what they go after. He notes that they
Ket honey when they go out in the face
of a gathering storm, and that they fail
at other times. He simply states this as
a fact without attempting to theorize
upon it at all. The bees in this part of
the country were fed this spring till about
the f.rst of June, and it looks as though
there might be ereat need for feeding
them early this fill and all through the

The Moline Dipatch in this county

the practice of the county boards in or
dering the publication of the names of

In aeeordDce with the orders of the
board of supervisors the names of all per-
sors receiving aid from the county are re
corded in the proceedings of the July
meeting wnicn we puoiiKti this week. We
consider the publication unnecessary and
humiliating to persons compelled by
misfortune to ask aid. What good end can
be accomplished by thus parading before
the world the names of the poor and un
fortunate? Professional beggars will not
care a fanning how much publicity is
thus given them, and will not be deterred
in the least from taking all they ctn get.
But the industrious, deserving poor
those who will strain every nerve rather
than ask charity will shed many a bit
ter tear, and even suffer the pangs of
hunger and cold, rather than have their
poverty paraded before the world. It is
a heartless charity that arms its gifts
with the stins; of reprwach. We believe
each individual supervisor has heretofore
used his best judgment in disbursing the
poor fund, and fail to see how anv of them
can be aided in that duty by the present
rule. Without such publicity the board
can Inquire into any abuses that may re
sult from the disbursment of the poor
fund as easily as with it. The sole
benefit to be derived by the publication
will be the saving of the pittance that
honest poverty will rather go without
than suffer the humility of being adver
tised. It is our belief that a considera
tion of this matter by the members of the
board will result in the order being re
scinded at the earliest opportunity. That
is what ought to be done at any rate. and
is what public sentiment will demand.

A singular coincidence appears among
the events of the disaster at Maiden Rock
on Lake Pepin. The heroine of the
novel. "His Private Character," was
named Cora Johnson. The basis of the
story Is a wreck at that place and the le
gend of Maiden Rock. All are familiar
with the old Indian fable since it has been
elaborated by Mark Twain and others.
We have all heard of "Lovers Leap," and
this name so indiscriminately applied to
many Mississippi bluffs only originated
in the legend which Mr. Ross has made
the foundation of his novel. As the le
gend runs, Winona, the Indian princess,
was compelled by Bad-Ax, her father, to
marry contrary to her desires and to pre
vent so dire a calamity she preferred
death by leaping from some 400 feet into
the river. Now in actual truth we see
the name of Cora Johnson on the list of
the dead and lost in the wreck of the Sea
Wing. Muscatine Newt -Tribune.
Deafness Can't be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mncous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken oat and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed foTever. Nine
cases out of ten era caused by catarrh,
which imothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.

any case of deafness caused by catarrh

The fourt eoth biennial festival of the
Upper Mississippi Turn bezirk opened at
Davenport yesterday. At the tsgesatung
in this city t. few months ago this festival
was located at Burlington, but owing to
the unfriencly disposition manifested in
that city to'vard the organization it was
changed to Davenport. The society in
eludes the cities of Davenport. North

Burlington, Walcott, Des Moines, Clin-

in Illinois. The Clinton and Burlington
delegations were accompanied by im

of several hundred.
Yesterday morning occurred a grand
street parad) through the business por

an address ( f welcome was delivered by

This morning occurred another street
procession, and a continuation of the
sports and contests at the park. This
evening prizes will be announced and

"Has it occurred to you that the preva
lence of the summer flannel shirt, the
straw hat md other distinctively hot
weather garments, and the outing shoes,
is an evidence of a really important
change in the American attitude towards
the rest of the world." asked one busi
ness man of another.
The man to whom the question was
put thought it hadn't, and the first
speaker continued: 'I believe it means
emancipation from the servile imitation
of Europe, and particularly of Great
Britain, prevalent there for .the last twen
ty years. We have been trying
to wear in our hot summer gar
ments suite 1 to the cool summer of
London, and in our cold winter garments
fitted only fir the uniformly mild, damp

What is a cold In the beadf Medical
authorities sty it is due to uneven cloth
ing of the body, rapid cooling when in a
perspiration, etc The important point
is, that a cold in the head is an inflamma

which, when unchecked, is certain to pro
duce a catarrhal condition for catarrh is
essentially a "cold" which nature is no
longer able to 'resolve' or throw off.

before that common ailment becomes
sealed and ends in obstinate catarrh.
